Sunday, October 5, 2008. (AP) -- Chicago still has one team alive in the baseball playoffs.

One day after the Cubs were swept in the National League playoffs, the Chicago White Sox stayed alive by beating Tampa Bay 5-3. That cuts the Rays' lead in the AL playoff series to 2-1.

John Danks pitched another big game to save the White Sox season. Danks allowed three runs in six and two-thirds innings in getting the win. Bobby Jenks earned the save with a scoreless run.

DeWayne Wise delivered a two-run double in the White Sox fourth when Chicago broke a 1-1 tie with three runs. Matt Garza was the Rays' losing pitcher, allowing five runs on seven hits in six innings.

Game four in the best-of-five matchup is Monday in Chicago, with Gavin Floyd facing Tampa Bay's Andy Sonnanstine.
